Musicam USA has introduced an addition to its repertoire of IP products, the PC IP software codec, which is now shipping.
Modeled after its Suprima, the PC IP software codec essentially is a Suprima in a software version. Algorithms available include G.722, MPEG Layer II, Layer III and MPEG-4. Operating systems of Windows XP and higher are required.
President Alvin Sookoo said the product was in response to clients, “who want the convenience of Suprima’s performance combined with portable software. This is particularly beneficial for spot news coverage and press conferences.”
Any broadband or wireless connection will enable reporters to transport live or edited audio via IP from a remote event back to the studio, he said, without missing a beat or having to worry if an ISDN connection is available.
